Effect of the growth conditions on the synthesis of a recombinant beta-1,4-endoglucanase in continuous and fed-batch culture
Continuous culture and fed-batch fermentations were used to test the behavior of the system Bacillus subtilis DN1885/(pCH7) that synthesizes a recombinant beta-1,4-endoglucanase. Continuous culture experiments were focused on the study of the instability aspects of the system as well as determination of the biomass growth rate range at which the recombinant enzyme synthesis was improved. Fed-batch fermentations were carried out to study the possibility of enhancing recombinant enzyme synthesis through the control of medium addition. It was found that, in continuous culture fermentations, the culture is less unstable at low dilution rates (dilution rate < 0.1 h(-1)). Also, low dilution rates give a higher specific recombinant enzyme concentration (10 times more than chat obtained at high dilution rates). In fed-batch fermentation, the final recombinant enzyme concentration can be manipulated through the medium addition strategy. To increase the recombinant enzyme concentration, the carbon source has to be fed slowly, otherwise enzyme synthesis is impaired due to catabolite I repression. Therefore, an increase in the biomass concentration does not necessarily imply an increase in the recombinant enzyme concentration. Higher recombinant enzyme concentrations were found in fed-batch fermentations compared to those obtained in continuous culture. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Inc. All rights reserved.
